“[Barry Trotz is] going to explain to everybody, it’s not about just me, everybody will have to change,” said Ovechkin, who became the 11th player in NHL history to record five 50-goal campaigns. “We just talked about how he wants to play with me and how he wants to play with the team. We talked about good things — lots of good things, lots of bad things — he sees what he can change with the team and what he can change with my game”

  • Ovechkin is also eager for a fresh start. (NHL.com) From the article:

“The whole organization made a big step by firing George, firing Adam,” Ovechkin said Monday during media availability for the 2014 NHL Awards. “The organization wants to make improvements. Thank God they don’t fire me yet. I’m still here with a Capitals jersey. We’ll see.”
